Are Pacers Most ‘Secure’ Team in the East?

With wing extraordinaire Paul George signing a max-level, five-year contract with the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, a legitimate argument can be made that the Pacers have the most secure medium to long-term future of any Eastern Conference team.
At just 23 years of age, the 6-8 small forward already is one of the top five defenders in the NBA, as evidenced by his regular season advanced numbers, and is quickly developing a really strong offensive game.
Based on the contract he will get, George is clearly the centerpiece of the franchise going forward. But his talented frontcourt compatriots, Roy Hibbert and David West, also are locked up for at least the next two seasons with player options for the 2015-2016 season.
